What is QMUN?
Queen’s Model United Nations is an annual MUN conference held at Queen’s University campus in Kingston, Ontario. 2017 will mark the 32 year for QMUN, making it one of the longest running MUN conferences in Canada. QMUN is a non-profit student organized conference that brings together 225 delegates from all undergraduate faculties at Queen’s, to participate in debate on international affairs.
The theme of 2017 is "International Peacekeeping and Peace-Building". 9 separate committees will debate sub-topics on the overarching theme over the 4 days of the conference. QMUN's first ever General Assembly will also be held this year. All 225 delegates will be brought together on the second day of debate to interact in a crisis style debate format.
Participation at QMUN does not require prior experience at a model UN conference or membership in a MUN team! We welcome all delegates to attend! The size of the conference provides students with a more intimate and comprehensive debating experience to engage in discussion about pressing international issues and develop solutions while applying various global perspectives.
The delegate fee will encompass attendance for open ceremony wine and cheese, 4 days of debate, speeches from 4 keynote speakers, 2 evening socials, a formal banquet dinner, and closing ceremonies and awards.
